Founder of Frios
Favorite Pop: Banana Pud’n
After years of working in public relations, marketing, and online communications, Andy decided it was time for a career change. Combining his talents for creative marketing, a longtime passion for culinary arts, and a seldom used collegiate background in chemistry - Andy found a new passion...frozen pops!
In 2013, Andy founded Frios with a few strokes of good luck, a tiny amount of savings, and a blessing from his family who thought he may be facing a midlife crisis. Of course, Andy had help from a few close friends, too!
Frios' humble beginnings started in a small incubator kitchen with Andy selling pops from a single cart on Broad Street in Gadsden. With a handful of flavorful and creative frozen desserts, Frios Gourmet Pops was an instant success and has grown overnight to be one of the best frozen dessert companies in the country.
Frios has since outgrown our tiny starter kitchen and graduated to a 16,000 square foot facility in Rainbow City, Alabama. With an elite team of like-minded staff, Andy continues to come up with creative flavors and can still be found working the carts at events from time to time.

Kevin enjoys spending time on his boat fishing for marlin – but don’t let the laid back “beach lifestyle” look fool you – he knows his stuff! This serial entrepreneur has been involved with many successful companies. And when he isn’t counting the beans – or, ummm, strawberries – Kevin enjoys long walks on the beach, Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
